Sean Lewis was not alive when Ronald Reagan was sworn in for his second term as President of the United States. Kent State's new head coach is really, really young.

Lewis, 31, became the youngest head coach in the FBS when the Golden Flashes introduced him on Thursday. He arrived from his co-offensive coordinator post at Syracuse, which was his third stop under Dino Babers. Lewis previously worked with Babers at both Eastern Illinois and Bowling Green. He was a colleague of Andrew Sowder at both programs.

Unlike Lewis, Sowder did not follow Babers from Bowling Green to Syracuse in 2016, and instead opted for a position at Texas, which was followed by one year at San Jose State. But on Thursday, the pair reunited to form the youngest head coach-coordinator duo in the country when the 31-year-old Lewis hired the 29-year-old Sowder to lead his Kent State offense.
Their combined age is 13 years younger than the 73-year-old head coach of division rival Ohio, Frank Solich.
